HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, episode 278, aired on April 12, 2013. It was an interesting hour of discussion.
So often when a Republicans speak it is "lies told to idiots" as Bill Maher described it. David Stockman, an economic adviser to Ronald Reagan and a panelist on the show on 4/12/13 is an exception. He hearkens back to the old days when Republicans were worthy of respect. He's intelligent, he speaks in a calm manner, and he knows what he is talking about. His views are moderate, even liberal. It's a good thing for him that he has no ambitions to run for office on the Republican tickethe could never win a primary because he's not ignorant and crazy as most of the Republican candidates are or pretend to be.
Stockman asked, "Why would you believe an 18th century law about muskets applies to today's world?" He added, "The first amendment is the real protector of our freedom." And "You have to register your car, so why not your gun?" Yes, it is hard to believe, but a Republican actually said those things.
